Palestinians 'Creating' Tensions Over East Jerusalem

Remember the news that the Israeli government were preparing to build more settlements in East Jerusalem? Well, the Palestinians quite rightly brought this up during the latest round of peace talks. And the Israelis response? According to one Israeli official:

"We really wanted to see it as a procedural meeting in good spirit. They created a tense atmosphere."

'They' created a tense atmosphere? The arrogance of the Israeli government is, apparently, limitless.
